    Many companies that provide health insurance are self funded meaning it is really not an insurance pool. The insurance companies administer the policy but the companies pay all the cost. In those case then there is no concerned about pre existing conditions because every new employee are eligible.

    Single payer is still mandatory insurance. It just takes the choice out of it. Instead a handful of government-approved insurance vendors, you're limited to one.

    Or making people pay for car insurance even if they don't own/drive a car. They're bound to require transportation sooner or later.

    It's okay if babies die in this country if they aren't white? Is this what you are trying to argue here, buddy.

    Um, decent Americans are... because it's a bad thing. It's not an excuse to spend 5% of our GDP on a bloated defense budget, where we spend more than the next ten countries combined, and 8 of them are allies.

    But again, we have enough money to make sure every American gets health care... we just don't spend it correctly.

    Again, nobody called out Mitt Romney for doing in the 2008. The guy literally got more shit for being a Mormon in 2008 than he got for RomneyCare.

    By 2012, though we had a Negro in the White House, and the Evangelicals would have supported Romney if he were sacrificing virgins to C'Thulhu.

    It's okay if babies die in this country if they aren't white?

    Blaming our healthcare system when babies born of drug abusers don't survive, seems silly.
    And using preemies born 4 months early in our stats when some foreign nations exclude babies
    that die within a few days of birth.....means you can't compare stats....honestly.

    Gross differences in the fundamental definition of “live birth” invalidate comparisons of early neonatal death rates. The United States strictly adheres to the WHO definition of live birth (any infant “irrespective of the duration of the pregnancy, which . . . breathes or shows any other evidence of life . . . whether or not the umbilical cord has been cut or the placenta is attached”) and uses a strictly implemented linked birth and infant-death data set. On the contrary, many other nations, including highly developed countries in Western Europe, use far less strict definitions, all of which underreport the live births of more fragile infants who soon die. As a consequence, they falsely report more favorable neonatal- and infant-mortality rates.

    A 2006 report from WHO stated that “among developed countries, mortality rates may reflect differences in the definitions used for reporting births, such as cut-offs for registering live births and birth weight.” The Bulletin of WHO noted that “it has also been common practice in several countries (e.g. Belgium, France, Spain) to register as live births only those infants who survived for a specified period beyond birth”; those who did not survive were “completely ignored for registration purposes.” Since the U.S. counts as live births all babies who show “any evidence of life,” even the most premature and the smallest — the very babies who account for the majority of neonatal deaths — it necessarily has a higher neonatal-mortality rate than countries that do not.

    Absolutely. If you make sick people wait 6-9 months and then give them sub-optimal care,
    we could cover lots more people.

    /——/ Actually you didn’t refute the link saying you can’t compare us mortality rates to the rest of the world.

    Um, okay, let's look at this stupidity. Most countries treat drug addiction like a medical problem, and people get treatment.

    We treat it like a criminal problem to feed the Prison-Industrial Complex, and they don't.

    Um, yeah, I think we can blame our system for that.

    But, hey, they are only little darkies, so who cares?

    You obviously don't.

    Well, you have a point there... because poor people can't get prenatal care, we have a higher rate of premature births... but again, they are only darkies...

    But the reality is, most countries count them the same way we do, and guess what, we still do worse. A lot worse.

    Except that again, they have better stats than we do.

    Actually, I did. You were just way too stupid to understand. This is the kind of brain damage you get when you listen to the Corporate Propaganda on Hate Radio all day.
